Delaney will leave the lab to conduct "larger-than-life demos that combine scientific method with curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity. The experiments featured will include creating a man-made fire tornado, turning leaf blowers into homemade hovercrafts, impressing a crowd by making an instant nitrogen cloud and visiting a salon to share a surprising use for its hydrogen peroxide.
Delaney's sidekick Darren Dyk will capture all that action with slow-motion footage that provides insight into what the eye can't normally see.
Delaney, who has appeared on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, works at the Museum of Discovery in Little Rock, Ark., performing science experiments for kids during the day and overseeing his "Science After Dark" program at night to inspire families to inquire, interact and get involved with science.
Street Science is produced by Spectrum Productions of Tampa. Guy Nickerson and Lauren Williams are executive producers, along with Science Channel’s Kyle McCabe.
"Kevin Delaney is science magician, performing mind-blowing stunts on the streets — and yet, there's no trickery or sleight of hand, as he reveals the everyday science behind fire, rockets, explosions and more," said Marc Etkind, general manager of Science Channel.
